Channelling in bent crystals is technique with high potential to steer charged-particle beams for several applications in accelerators. Channeling and related techniques underwent significant progress in the last years. Distinctive features of performance increase was the availability of novel ideas other than new techniques to manufacture the crystal for channeling. We propose two methods to fabricate crystals through silicon micromachining techniques, ie, isotropic or anisotropic silicon etchings. Characterization of the crystals ...
